Avantto and Air BP collaborate in carbon offsetting program for business aviation

Please note the view expressed in this post are those of the member posting and not necessarily of the BBGA


  • Aircraft management company Avantto has launched a pioneering initiative in Brazil, in collaboration with Air BP, to offset the carbon emissions related to their use of aviation fuel.
  • The carbon emissions will be offset by BP Target Neutral, a well-established program that invests in carbon reduction projects around the world.
  • The initiative reaffirms Avantto’s commitment to sustainability and builds on existing initiatives to reduce their carbon emissions.

São Paulo, May 17, 2018 – Avantto Aircraft Administration, in collaboration with Air BP, announces a pioneering program in Brazil to offset carbon emissions in the business aviation sector. The carbon emissions related to the use of all of the aviation fuel supplied by Air BP to Avantto for the next 12 months will be offset via BP Target Neutral, in line with the companies’ commitment to a lower carbon future.

“Through our partnership with Air BP, we have taken another step in our sustainability journey. Now, in addition to benefits such as safety, availability and convenience, our clients will also have the carbon emissions from the aviation fuel used in their flights offset, thereby responding in a practical way to the climate challenges,” says Rogério Andrade, Avantto’s CEO.

Avantto performs more than 750 take-offs per month, accumulating more than 4,500 flight hours per year, for about 400 users. Concerns about sustainability are at the heart of Avantto’s business model.  Through shared flights between clients, it is possible to optimize aircraft occupancy by reducing fuel consumption and the number of “empty legs”. Also, Avantto operates in one of the world’s most modern heliports – HBR Aviation, whose construction respected and prioritized a minimum environmental impact.

The program will be launched on June 1, 2018, and initially run for one year, with the possibility of being extended into the future. This is Air BP’s first carbon offsetting offer for business aviation customers in Brazil and complements its carbon neutral into-plane fueling operations at 250 directly operated locations around the world, including a number of locations in Brazil such as Sao Paulo Guarulhos and Rio de Janeiro Galeao international airports.

“In addition to finding ways to reduce our own carbon emissions, we work closely with our customers to develop innovative offers that support them in the transition to a lower carbon future. We are proud to launch this initiative in Brazil in collaboration with Avantto, which gives business aviation customers the opportunity to reduce the carbon impact of flying ” says Ricardo Paganini, General Manager, Air BP South America.

All the carbon emissions related to use of the aviation fuel supplied by Air BP to Avantto will be offset through BP Target Neutral.  The carbon emission reductions from its global portfolio of projects are independently verified and monitored in line with the ICROA (International Carbon Reduction & Offset Alliance) Code of Best Practice. Projects within the BP Target Neutral portfolio have been assessed on the basis of their contribution to reducing carbon emissions and their potential to support the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, for example, through their potential to help improve livelihoods for the communities they are based in through various educative, economic and social benefits.

About Avantto

Founded in 2011, Avantto offers the best executive aircraft management solutions available, giving customers the pleasure of piloting their aircraft safely, on time, and worry-free, and all for a fraction of the cost. For more information, go to www.avantto.com.br

Air BP to offset carbon emissions of fuel supplied to Teruel Airport in May

Please note the view expressed in this post are those of the member posting and not necessarily of the BBGA


·         Teruel Airport, in collaboration with Air BP, announces carbon offsetting initiative to commemorate airport’s fifth anniversary

·         All carbon emissions related to aviation fuel supplied during the month of May to be offset via BP Target Neutral

Madrid, May 17, 2018. To mark the fifth anniversary of Teruel Airport, Air BP and PLATA (Plataforma Aeroportuaria de Teruel) have launched an initiative where carbon emissions related to the aviation fuel supplied at the airport will be offset through carbon reduction projects around the world.

Carbon emissions from the JET-A1 and AVGAS 100LL supplied at the airport by Air BP during May 2018 will be offset through BP Target Neutral, a programme designed to help customers reduce, replace and neutralize carbon emissions.  BP Target Neutral will balance the emissions from aviation fuel at Teruel by purchasing carbon credits from projects around the world that have reduced emissions. This process nets the emissions from aviation fuel at Teruel to zero for the month of May.

Valerio Ferro, General Manager Air BP West Med, said: “This initiative demonstrates Air BP’s continued commitment to Teruel Airport, providing it with leading-edge, innovative aviation fuel solutions and helping with the transition towards a lower carbon future.”

The aim of Plataforma Aeroportuaria de Teruel has always been to provide aviation services while respecting the environment it is operating in. It has achieved this through closely monitoring what best practice is in this area and then implementing it. “Minimizing our environmental impact has always been a priority and guided us in the development of multiple initiatives,” says Alejandro Ibrahim, General Manager of Teruel Airport. “Because of that, we are leading the Spanish airport industry where carbon offsetting programmes are concerned.”

To balance emissions from Teruel BP Target Neutral’s global portfolio includes a variety of offset projects ranging from the installation of hydropower plants in rural China to biogas initiatives in Karnataka, India. All the projects are selected by an independent forum, independently verified and monitored in line with the ICROA (International Carbon Reduction & Offset Alliance) Code of Best Practice. The projects are chosen based on their contribution to UN Sustainable Development Goals, which includes their contribution to reducing carbon emissions and improving livelihoods for the communities they are based in through various educative, economic and social benefits.

Tomorrows World Today at the BBGA Annual Conference – 8th March 2018 – Luton Hoo

Please note the view expressed in this post are those of the member posting and not necessarily of the BBGA


With the topical theme of ‘Tomorrow’s World Today,’ much of the focus at The British Business and General Aviation Conference on 8 March was quite rightly on where business and general aviation will begin seeing increased competition and how they can begin innovating themselves to stay relevant.

Fanatical Futurist Matthew Griffin told the audience how new technology will drive the industry’s disruption, citing the introduction of the world’s first autonomous organisations in 2016.  By 2025, Griffin said it is predicted that more decisions will be made by machines than humans.  And that by 2040 we will see the end of the motor car as we know it, with new autonomous vehicles, minus steering wheel, dashboard and pedals.  They are coming, he said, showing a futuristic ubiquitous design from Audi.

While today this might be a daunting prospect – most of the 150 delegates present still weren’t sold on the idea of pilotless aircraft – Griffin is confident emerging technologies will change the industry for the better. A switch to electric vehicles, for example, will see increasing investment in energy technology and supply, furthering the possibility of introducing batteries on aircraft and cutting fuel costs.

Elsewhere, Matthew Jones, Blockchain Leader, Automotive, Aerospace and Defence from IBM explained the benefits of blockchain technology.  A show of hands showed the audience had heard of it but didn’t really know too much about it.  Despite the common misconception it is only relevant to financial transactions, Jones asserted blockchain is capable of much more and could save businesses between 20-30% on their overall operating costs.

How? Jones says the financial services industry is already beginning to use blockchain for regulatory purposes. By digitising regulations and putting them on a blockchain rail, Jones explains compliance can be monitored in real-time without any paperwork. According to Jones, blockchain has already been successfully applied to the shipping industry.

The B word was also on the agenda, led by Alasdair Whyte, Managing Director of Corporate Jet Investor.  The proposed two-year “transition period” after the March 2019 Brexit date could mean things don’t change too quickly, and the consensus of the panel, which included Mike Alcock, assistant director for aviation at the DfT, was that things might change very little in practice.

David Oastler, Brexit Focal at the UK CAA, said there is a lot of uncertainty and advised businesses should be thinking what they have to do – on many scenarios. However, the UK

Has such a presence in EASA and contributes so much to its work, it is going to be self-harming to Europe to exclude those resources, delegates heard.

In his CEO address Marc Bailey said it was extremely encouraging that BBGA is now well positioned with the authorities which greatly helps gives members a voice.  Its new partnership with EBAA of shared membership for all UK registered member companies has bolstered membership to over 190.  Marc, who is marking eight years as CEO, is chair of the national associations too and is working closely with EBAA to strengthen them and encourage fledgling associations in new territories, like Austria, for example.

Its determination to shed the perception that BBGA is run by a male, pale and stale closed jet club was evident at this upbeat, positive gathering, which was enhanced by app technology for posing audience questions and video coverage by GearUp.tv.

Updating members on its Visions and Values initiative launched last year, BBGA is making efforts to get out into the regions with its BBGA Connects scheme and is working closely with organisations including EBAA, AOA, IBAC, AOPA, GAA to get that single voice heard.  It has been busy, along with 10-member volunteers, on a review of its structure, constitution, and governance which will be rolled out this year.

It is also restructuring its various work groups to focus on specific activity and challenges to encourage pro-active action by members.  Its FBO group, for example, is focused on securing better access to slots and parking as business aviation is getting squeezed at busy airports like London Luton and Stansted.

BBGA’s activity is further bolstered by the news that the UK’s All-Party Parliamentary Aviation Group (APPG), headed by former minister Grant Shapps MP has now topped 100 MP members.  A general aviation tsar,  Bryon Davies has been appointed and the DoT is focusing on looking at the network of airfields it needs up until 2050.

Rounding off an informative day, Dr. Sarah Flattery from IHP Solutions, reminded delegates how important it is to switch off regularly – to aid business performance. This seems especially important in warding off distractions.

Each time we look at something on our phones – an email, social media – it takes approximately 23 minutes to re-focus. Flaherty pointed out that on average we’re likely to spend 40% of our day distracted, which is not good for productivity.

To combat both distraction and fatigue, Flaherty advocates practicing mindfulness, something which is known to be used by many successful CEOs. The results range from increased workforce attention and efficiency to less sickness. It’s all about finding balance.

‘Finding Balance’ is a great way to sum up the recent efforts of the BBGA.  As outgoing CAA Chief Executive Andrew Haines compared general aviation with the chapels in South Wales where he grew up, joking, “They know what they agree on but not what they disagree on,” he underlined the importance of BBGA’s role –providing one clear voice for business and general aviation. Underlining the excellent relationship the UK CAA and BBGA enjoy Andrew introduced his successor Richard Moriarty at the Luton Hoo event, who stayed on all day to chat with delegates, right through to the evening gala dinner.

ExecuJet announces free trade zone for customers in Nigeria

ExecuJet announces free trade zone for customers in Nigeria

ExecuJet, part of the Luxaviation Group, is announcing the approval of a free trade zone at its MRO facility in Lagos, Nigeria, with customers set to save 10-15% or more on supply and maintenance services.

The free trade zone (FTZ) means that parts and services, which previously would have incurred VAT and costs from customs authorities, will now be exempt from these charges. ExecuJet will be passing this substantial saving onto customers.

The agreement also allows the company to keep consignment stock for a number of OEMs, which means quicker turnaround for parts – a bonus which will benefit both business aviation operators and regional airlines in Nigeria.

Gavin Kiggen, Vice President Africa, ExecuJet, says: “Obtaining the FTZ took approximately two years, during which time the ExecuJet team had to demonstrate how the FTZ would benefit Lagos and Nigeria as a whole. We’re very proud to now announce the approval of the FTZ in Lagos, and the successful negotiation of zero VAT and zero duties for ExecuJet customers.

Lagos FBO ExecuJet

“The FTZ is the latest addition to our services in Nigeria, after we welcomed a number of manufacturers to our facility in 2017. Our MRO in Lagos is on an exciting trajectory, and we expect this to continue as we serve our customers with ever-more competitive pricing to match the quality, performance and efficiency that ExecuJet demonstrates on a local and a global scale.”

The High-Flying Destinations this Easter, as Revealed by Air Partner’s Jetcard

Please note the view expressed in this post are those of the member posting and not necessarily of the BBGA


  • The best destinations for private jet flyers to explore this spring and why a growing number of people are choosing to use the most flexible private jet programme

London, UK, 27 March 2018: Air Partner, the leading private aviation company, provides clients with the fastest way to travel this Easter with its JetCard programme. Air Partner’s JetCard programme remains the most flexible private jet membership for the fifth consecutive year in Europe and USA according to Conklin & de Decker, the independent aviation consultancy.

As more and more people look to travel abroad this Easter, private jet travel allows clients the flexibility to choose when they want to fly, to skip lengthy queues and arrive even closer to their final destination. ABTA reports that over half of all holidaymakers are planning to take a city break this year, while 47% will choose a beach holiday in 2018. Regardless of the type of holiday, Easter break is the perfect time to get away.

“Air Partner’s JetCard offers a quick and unrivalled private jet solution to those looking to getaway this Easter. Easter is the perfect time to book a city break or short beach holiday and Air Partner allows clients to access smaller airports, bespoke in-flight experiences and dedicated Account Managers to look after every detail. Our JetCard continues to set the industry standard and has seen an increase of 13% in the number of flights and passengers flown in January and February this year compared to a year earlier,” said Julia Timms, Chief Marketing Officer.

Air Partner has selected some of the best spots to visit this Easter with their JetCard to enjoy some snow, sun or culture:

European ski resorts are overflowing with late snow making Easter skiing a must this year. Air Partner’s clients can travel even closer to the slopes by accessing smaller airports meaning more ski time. For those who want to enjoy every last minute on the slopes, a helicopter transfer from the airport can also be arranged. Air Partner saw more than a 50% increase in both distance and time flown during the early winter season in 2017 when compared to the same period in 2016.

New York is perfect for a short Easter break with its annual Easter Bonnet Parade which can be followed by a spot of brunch, some leisurely walks through the city and  during Easter and a must visit. Those looking for beach and city breaks can visit destinations such as Malaga, Ibiza and Palma. Both Malaga and Palma are host to colourful parades at this time of year including the spectacular La Sang procession which sees a huge gathering on all the streets.

Air Partner specialises in last minute logistical planning and complex multi-leg trips making even the most remote location more convenient and accessible. Air Partner completed 268 complex multi-leg JetCard trips from March 2017 through to March 2018. Multi-leg trips allow clients to travel to multiple destinations even further afield and in a shorter period of time. Air Partner’s use of quieter regional airports and private terminals means clients can be brought closer to their final destination and helps to avoid the busy Easter queues. As clients wait for the best weather to appear and hold off booking flights, scheduled services are quickly overwhelmed, so private aviation is infinitely more flexible for clients looking to book their Easter holidays.

Air Partner’s JetCard offers clients an unrivalled jet solution with 24/7 global coverage year-round. Clients who use the JetCard only pay for the time they fly with no hidden fees, flight hours that never expire and fully-refundable account balances. There is no limit to the number of users that can be linked to a corporate JetCard, thus appealing to corporate clients as well. Clients can also benefit from Air Partner’s premium cancellation policy which allows them to change their destination or cancel the trip entirely up until 7am the day before the flight with no risk of incurring any cancellation fees.

How mindfulness can improve your business – the science behind the hype

Please note caveat from Dr Sarah Flaherty: ‘I would also like to state that many of the images will be subject to copyright and I haven’t cited sources. And whilst the neuroscience is sound with regards to evidence, some of the stats are subject to discussion as they’re from non-academic sources’

 


 

‘Our BBGA membership gives us access to an unparalleled repository of knowledge on aviation regulations and practices. If BBGA’s own in-house experts can’t answer a query they know someone who can; right across all of the disciplines of certified general aviation and business aviation too.
BBGA’s ability to bring together all sectors of UK general and business aviation gives us enviable networking access.
Nobody has the ear of the regulator like BBGA and that’s two-way thing; BBGA is not just able to elicit answers from EASA, the CAA and DfT, its advice and recommendations are sought both nationally and supra-nationally too. That makes membership a vital way to influence upcoming policy.’
